October Mountain Shooting Suspect Indicted, Released on Bail
A Pittsfield man was arraigned on Wednesday afternoon on 11 charges stemming from the August shooting at October Mountain in Washington.
According to the Berkshire County District Attorney's office, 24-year-old Daquan Douglas went before Judge John Agostini at Berkshire Superior Court. Douglas had not guilty pleas entered on his behalf for two counts each of kidnapping while being armed with a firearm and assault and battery. In addition, not guilty pleas were entered on a count each of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon causing serious bodily injury, assault and battery but means of a dangerous weapon, armed kidnapping with serious bodily injury, misleading a police officer, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony and malicious damage to a motor vehicle.
Judge Agostini released Douglas on $10,000 bail, according to the Berkshire County District Attorney's office.
Douglas is being accused of assaulting and shooting a 19-year-old man on Aug. 21. It is also alleged that he assaulted a 21-year-old man and allegedly kidnapped the two men, along with an 18-year-old female in connection with the same incident.
On Tuesday, a second suspect was arraigned in Berkshire Superior Court on charges stemming from the August incident. Kevin Nieves, 19, had not guilty pleas entered on his behalf -- also on 11 charges -- and was ordered by Judge Agostini to be held at the Berkshire County House of Correction without the right to bail.
Additional arraignments are expected this week as multiple suspects have been arrested in connection to the investigation.
